Lunatic Fringe by Allison Moon


Lexie Clarion is nervous about college. She’s plagued with beastly visions, local werewolf attacks are on the rise, and she really wants to kiss a girl. And classes haven’t even started yet. 
Things start looking up when she meets the Pack, a group of radical women who have their own methods for handling the werewolf menace. Fascinated by their politics, intimacy, and general bad-assery, Lexie’s sure she wants to join them, until an accident brings a captivating stranger into her life: Archer, a rugged woman with heterochromatic eyes and a dark secret. 
The Pack will go to brutal lengths to win Lexie's favor, but they underestimate Archer's love. 
As Archer and the Pack battle for Lexie's allegiance, the waxing moon illuminates old hatreds, new enemies, and a secret from Lexie's childhood that will change her life forever.

My Thoughts:
Lunatic Fringe was a decently good book. It started off really well, then towards the middle got kind of boring, but picked up again at the end. The end got a little confusing for about ten pages, trying to figure out who was a werewolf and who wasn't. I could have done without one of the more graphic sex scenes in the middle of the book, but the rest of the sex scenes were written very well. I didn't care for most of the women in The Pack, other than Jenna. She had an innocence about her that I liked. My favorite characters were Lexie and Archer. Without giving anything away, I wish Lexie would have made a different choice at the end of the book. I thought Lunatic Fringe was a great debut book by a very talented author. Due to the sex scenes, I would only recommend it for mature adult readers, 18 and older.

I give Lunatic Fringe: 4/5.
